for self-defense and for hunting and for sportsman activities. target shooting. i still go target shooting basically out my backyard in searchlight with my grandchildren. but i've always had trouble understanding why people need assault weapons to hunt or protect their homes or to target shoot. when the assault weapons ban came before the senate for a vote ten years ago, i called my friends, one in particular, who is a real advocate with -- on guns. and he said to me, you can't define an assault weapon. why are you doing this? you can't define an assault weapon. he convinced me he was right, so i voted against that. i voted against the ban. just about a month ago i called this same friend. i asked if his opinion had changed. generally no, but specifically yes, it had changed. he still opposes a ban on assault weapons. i said tell me why. i found his new reasoning absurd. and even though i care a great deal about my friend, he's headed in the wrong direction. so it caused me to reassess my position. he said do police have assault weapons? i said, yeah, some of them. he said if they have the

to manage it defensively. by that, either have a ladder portfolio so you can reinvest as rates go up, or, have a short duration where you have -- >> okay. >> set et et cetera to keep your maturity short. >> i want to squeeze in a tax question. we hear that the obama administration may want to put a cap on the tax exemption. is that another reason to clean up your portfolio now rather than wait? >> well, i don't know that it's another reason to clean up your portfolio, but it's certainly something to keep on the radar screen. you know, obviously, with everything that's going on in washington, everything is on the table. and with each one that comes out, there's a proposal that there would be a 28% cap on deductions so no one would be lower than the 28% tax bracket. that means you couldn't have all tax-free income that would put you in no tax bracket. in essence, that would be a tax on municipal bonds. mayors and governors are fighting this very, very aggressively. and each time they seem to get it out of the budget proposal and then a new budget proposal comes out and it's back in. i do b
people respond. >> republicans are looking for a way out of that defense sector. there will be more pressure put on them right now. the people who wanted to wobble anyways, will be wobbling harder. we will not increase spending on anything right now. connell: i know it is tough a couple days after something like this happens and the development that are happening today, but what is your opinion? should we change the focus? >> in some ways it should focus our focus. think about 9/11. we reacted to that with a big massive freak out, for lack of a better word. we are still taking off our shoes at the airports. we thought we needed to do something. let's remember that as we react to boston right now. let's focus on that. we need to realize that facing this horrifying attack, we will not make it better with coming up with security theater to the measures. dagen: it is almost impossible to link spending directly with an event like this. >> of course. dagen: knowing so little as we do right now even about the type of devices that were used in boston. you are hearing references to it, but n
. absolutely zero. and defense officials may drop the furloughs entirely. homeland security has not furloughed anyone, and it has not cut overtime. so the exact impact is zero. the "washington post" gives away pinocchio's for lying. tonight we are giving dunce caps away, and we will continue to do this. elected officials to make egregiously silly statements. we think our elected officials should be so honored and noted. so we are going to award this to acquire tonight. and he earned it. i think you would agree. fellow democrat, a year from california, the head of the house democratic caucus today warned that the sequester cuts undermine the ability of our cities to respond to terrorist attacks. listen t this. >> so, when tho first responders did such a phenomenal job yesterday in boston, chances are the mayor in boston is now having to figure out how to cover for the extra cost involved in having so many people out there for security and emergency medical assistance responding because they get paid so he is now probably getting money from some other part of his budget, the community police tel
flow is going into the defensive sector of stocks. while nobody is watching the money is going into the bond market. these are all warning signs saying you know what? maybe we're at temporary top. maybe we need a correction here. david: gene, you see the warning signs. you see the dow pulling back to 14,000, right? >> that is correct. i do think there are signs which the guest already mentioned. there is weakness of oil to be concerned about over the near term. there is correlation with the oil and stock market since the start of this cycle. weakness in oil could portend investors worries that the economies are slowing down not just in china but globally as well. so that will probably put pressure on the market. the other thing too, we're in the earnings season and this might be the quarter that doesn't delight. that is that we do get some dispoints manned -- disappointments and we get stiff reactions to the disappointments. lori: bob, you were cautious yet looking for stocks to show gains for the year. what do you think will get us past these bumps in the road? >> i think the
/11 attack in productions for the cia defense personnel based upon legal guidance that has since been repudiated. the most important decision may have been to declare the geneva convention did not apply to al qaeda and taliban captives in afghanistan or guantanamo. the administration never specified what rules would have applied instead. the task force believes that u.s. defense intelligence professionals and service members in harm's way of the clear orders on the treatment of detainees requiring at a minimum compliance with, and article 3 as the geneva convention to be the this was not done. civilian leaders and military commanders have an affirmative responsibility to ensure that their subordinates comply with all of the war. president obama has committed to observe the conventions through an executive order but a future president could change it by the stroke of a pen. congress, our recommendation needs to work with the administration to strengthen the torture statute, the war crimes act and the uniform code of military justice to remove the loopholes that allow the torture to occ
are again, a defensive day by and large. the big question i got early this morning is what the heck happened in germany? i don't have an answer for you, and some people are calling it a mini flash crash. the dax dropped 180 points in like, eight minutes right after the open and i don't have an explanation and there is a series floating around about fat figure trades and it was very unusual to see that. germany is now down eight in a row and we are are down 1.7% in germany. france was down 1.5% and there were many knock-on effects as a result of this and that's all i can tell you about it. carl, i think you were mentioning these ping-pong markets and that's the other big topic overnight. so you are down 234 on monday and you're up 160 on tuesday. you are down 103 on wednesday here and it's very tough for active traders to take positions. you get a lot of complaints about this stuff. you get stripped out every day depending on which side you're buying protection on, going long or going short and it's hard to take positions and it gets frustrating for active traders and of course, you can stand
at a cost of $12 billion. the official position of taiwan's ministry of national defense remains committed to procuring those submarines from the u.s. however, as the u.s. stopped making these diesel submarines many years ago, the sale has been stalled. i know we worked with france and some of our allies on this. could you advise what the current status of this submarines being acquired by taiwan is? and finally, you don't necessarily have to comment on this. if you'd like to you can, but former -- but the former president languishes today in a jail cell in taiwan. to me it smacks of the criminalization of politics. . stoot extent this administration communicates with the president i urge you to urge president mah to do the humanitarian thing, president chen's health is failing. i now yield to you, thank you. >> thank you, congressman. i appreciate it. i'll take that and just follow up on it. let me see what we can do about that. on burma, you are absolutely correct. there will be bumps in the road. i hope not big ones. obviously things are happening today that were unimaginable a few year

know, depending on what the government was willing to say to this defense lawyer, whether or not and what benefit he might get as a result of his cooperation. remember, from the very beginning, from the president on down, everyone has said public safety is the first and highest priority. so the first question he's going to be asked is are there more devices and where are they? and, you know, and so if that were the case, i'm not suggesting it is, but it certainly is the first question you want to ask and to get to find any additional devices you would want -- you would want to give him the benefit of that cooperation. so this will have to -- it unfolds very methodically, right, the investigators have questions and in the order of the priority they're going to ask him, public safety will come first. second is to identify any additional potential conspirators who may have been involved in the planning or execution of the bombing. >> all right. fran, stand by. don't go away. we're going to continue the nonstop coverage here. our team coverage of what's going on at boston, wha
in place post-9/11 work. now it may be too late to save everyone, but it is providing a effective defense. >> in terms of the sophistication to carry out a mail attack, if you will, honestly the details around the anthrax attack are still very much -- we don't have clarity even a decade later. >> still in dispute. >> it takes a fair amount of sophistication and access to material to be able to even care something like this out. >> and anthrax is harder than ricin. anthrax to tell le weaponize it, grind it up, getting it to a place where it's effective is a bit more different than risen. ricin extracted from castor beans, this is not particularly sophisticated, but it is effective. it has to be ingested or inhaled, about you it requires somebody to at least give it some thought to sit down and produce it. >> luke, you are obviously here and not on capitol hill, but in terms of the reaction we're seeing from congress, the fact -- look, there's still legislation that they're debating at the capitol hill and it's on high alert. the question is how much it affects the proceedings. and there's
, but these deflationary pressures have been in play since the end of january when commodities started falling, defensive sectors started leading. you get the sense that something's happening, you get the feeling that something's about to hurt and then the spasm happens. when you have deflationary junctures, which is what every part of the market place is seeing is happening right now, that $85 billion a month is not enough from the fed -- >> you're making reference to how much they're buying every month when it comes to securities out? >> correct. >> peter anderson, bank of america may have set the tone this morning with that disappointing earnings report, yes? >> y >> yes, it was. and that's symptomatic of the -- >> peter, hang on one second. we'll have to do this for the next couple of hours as more news continues to break. let's go to sue herrera with the latest. what do you have, sue? >> bill, our team on the ground in boston is reporting to us that the federal courthouse in boston is now being evacuated. you're looking at a live picture right now of people leaving that courthouse. we don't know why
. and that is the strongest line of defense. yes, we have a department of homeland security and the fbi, but people are first responders across the country and citizens are just vigilant and observant notifying them of something they see is suspicious. when you think about the freedom of this country, 320 million somewhat people living lives that people in the rest of the world only dream of, we should take pride in that freedom, take pride in that safety, in the steps that have been taken, but understand in the 21st century, there are always going to be these risks. >> former new york state governor, george pataki, it is always good to see you. >> thank you. nice being with you. >> we got an update this morning on those swrired in the attack. of the 176 hospitaled, 69 are still in six area hospitals, all of them within a mile and a half radius. a 9-year-old girl and a 10-year-old boy are among 19 victims still listed in critical condition. the "today" show spoke with the doctor and father of 11-year-old aaron haern. >> he's doing a lot better. he's been through a lot. he actually a couple of times yesterday
